The Xcitement of Pamela!

The glorious Pamela Green posing on the set of the 1960 glamour film ‘Xcitement’ from a 35mm Pamar colour slide. Interestingly this image also appears on the cover of Kamera No.38 (1961) here, but one of the shots is reversed? The colours of the slide have faded so not as bright or colourful as the cover, but I think the slide is the correct way round not the cover, but I could be wrong?

Whichever way round you look at it, it’s a stunning shot of the legendary Pam and her figure 🙂

Margaret by Lamplight!

A glorious shot of the late Margaret Nolan. Taken in the studio by Russell Gay a perfect pose by Maggie next to an ornate table and standing lamp. Great lighting in the shot as well and she also seems to be wearing a blonde wig even though it’s similar to her own hair colour.

Rosemary – All On Display Outdoors!

Rosemary de Canonville giving us a great outdoor display of what she has to offer. Scanned from an original 10 by 8 print this shot was taken by Leslie Bainbridge and typical of his style.

It’s interesting to see the different styles and preferences of photographers back then. Roark obviously had a preference for the younger natural sun tanned models. Bainbridge opted for the fully shaven view leaving little to the imagination, but again with it’s own merits. I like both styles for different reasons, but still tend to go back to Harrison Marks and his more generic style of glamour photography. GHM tended to focus more on the shape and form of the models pose along with lighting than what the model had on offer.

Again we all enjoy differing styles, which is why I try and offer a bit of everything and as the years progressed so did glamour photography, either for the better or sometimes the worse 🙂

A Flash From Leya!

The slender figure and a quick flash from US Model Leya Kai by Howard Roark. From a set of 18 contact sheets by Roark featuring 100’s of different poses from Leya both inside and out. Another young Californian model from the 1970’s by Roark 🙂

Barbara Peckinpaugh – Front & Rear!

Another two shots of the stunning US model Barbara Peckinpaugh. Taken by US photographer Edmund Leja in 1980 from a set of original contact sheets in my collection. I seem to have a thing for showing doubles of Barbara, as both shots are rather nice. She was quite a beauty with a fabulous figure and I love the freckles across her top and shoulders.

Members get to see the second rear view shot of her kneeling bent over a sofa as she looks back at the camera. Plenty to see from that angle 😉
